Right to bear arms 2 The Right to Bear Arms “Now, I doubt any of you would prefer a rolled up newspaper as a weapon against a dictator or a  criminal  intruder." - Charlton Heston (1923-2008) The above quote was stated by Charlton Heston in a speech at The National Press club in 1997. Charlton Heston was a member and the president and spokesman for The NRA. There are many arguments’ and controversy over the second amendment, and the right to bear arms; there are those opposed to the right to bear arms, and there are those who are all for it and own firearms. Having fundamental and constitutional rights that the government cannot control protects us the people from government intrusion as well. Even though it is the second amendment, the right to bear arms is important because guns can be used to protect ones family and provide food and clothing by hunting. Some people depend on their firearms to provide an income for their family such as marksman, and others enjoy firearms for recreational purposes. There are many purposes that a firearm can be used for such as protection, hunting, recreation, and because they believe in the Second Amendment and bear arms. Owning a firearm does not always have to be seen in a negative perspective, having a firearm could help protect ones family, home, and business from any intruders. One cannot always be certain that they are safe in their own home; there are evil people in this world that are always looking for ways to make free money or to hurt others. There is the possibility that one can have an intruder come into their home, and having a firearm would help protect their family.
